    Yeah I'm serious, they wouldn't have the same content would they?
    They would have very similar course content , it's just structured differently.

    Did you look at my recent posts and find out where my firm was or was it a coincidence that you chose LSE as an example??
    Coincidence, outside of oxbridge, LSE is very hard to get into regardless.

    I know the results haven't come out yet and I still have a few exams left but it's no use. I've failed and I can't catch up and there's not enough time to study for the rest. (they're tomorrow)

    Should I give up on life now?
    Moved to 'A-levels'

    Keep your hopes high, because you might actually get good grades. you will never know! + You can always resit them

    Medicine, sure but Accounting & Finance would be fairly different at different unis.

    The point I was making is that medicine is considered to be extremely competitive, and I still managed to get offers after studying my A-Levels over three years.

    So for Accounting & Finance you should be absolutely fine providing you apply to unis that play to your strengths. I personally have a friend who did his A-Levels over 3 years and he is now studying Accounting & Finance, so you should be able to get some offers.

    It's completely pointless to give up now when you can still affect the grades you get.

    What are you going to do instead of revising?Just sit around and do nothing which is what you'll be doing in a weeks time anyway when they are all over?

    You never know what you got in your past exams, but you will kick yourself if it turns that you didn't do that bad in your initial exams and then ruined your chances by not revising for the rest.

    If you think your A Levels have gone bad, they've probably gone better than you expected.
    I came out of my AS geography exams thinking I'd failed for sure and it didn't help that I'd been getting E's and U's all year anyway. But in the end of it all, I ended up getting an A so you might be surprised on results day.

    Don't give up! You got this!

    My thoughts exactly, Bezoar!

    But to OP - if this is a genuine question, I think that there's probably more to you not passing your A levels than just not working hard enough! It may be time to look outside the world of academia.

    Also have you really applied to university? if so, you would be well aware of course codes - yes, the same course (e.g. English) is available at more than 1 university even if the content may vary.

    If you think one day is not enough to study then you my friend lack the determination to push forward. Its never too late till the minute you are in the exam room and they say start work. So if i were you i would go study right now and try to make things better. I know people who have exams 4 days in a row, who study with the time in between, including me, and they we pull it through. On some cases my head hurt so bad i even started to feel like vomiting but i still pushed forward so don't give up when all seems lost.
    Try to do past papers even when you know nothing. Attempt them and then when you get to question where you are stuck go to your text book learn it and write an answer down. Do this throughout the paper then mark it. If some are wrong take a note book and fill in the detail which you missed out on the question. Take like 15min break for each paper and trust me you will get somewhere. Even what you learn 5min before an exam can be useful.
    Keep calm and push forward.

    Hi- did you reapply for medicine due to extenuating circumstances? I don't really understand the policy in regards to resits.

    Don't most unis require you to have completed your A-levels in 2 years or less? So I can't resit them.
    I will definitely consider apprenticeships though. Thanks
    I don't know why everyone thinks this, I did my alevels in 3 years and got offers from 4 good unis, unless you want to apply to oxbridge it doesn't matter

    Yes I did. I sent an email around to every medical school in the U.K, detailing my previous grades and my situation, and asked if they would consider an application from me. I also made a few phone calls to those who didn't reply in a timely manner. That's the only way to know for sure who will consider you as some university websites have limited information.
